Barcelona move ahead in Raphinha race

Barcelona have beaten Chelsea to the signing of Raphinha.

Sport claim Leeds have accepted a bid worth £45million plus add-ons, some way below the deal Chelsea had agreed with the Yorkshire outfit.

Bayern eye Kane

Bayern Munich want Harry Kane.

According to German newspaper Kicker, the Tottenham striker is the German club’s ideal replacement for Robert Lewandowski.

Bayern want to keep the Pole until his contract expires next summer, with it acknowledged that any push for Kane could be better set then – given Antonio Conte’s resistance to any sale talks now.

ICYMI – Arsenal midfielder reveals Jose Mourinho transfer talks

Ronaldo was due the payment, which included image rights and performance bonuses, when the second year of his contract began on July 1, and word of his intention to leave first circulated on July 2.

Chelsea remain linked with signing the 37-year-old, but Bayern have ruled themselves out.

ICYMI – Bids confirmed for Arsenal and Tottenham target Lucas Paqueta

Lyon star Lucas Paqueta has been the subject of bids, Lyon have confirmed, amid links with Arsenal, Tottenham and Newcastle.

The midfielder is considered the Ligue 1 side’s prized asset, and Newcastle failed with an offer in January during negotiations for Bruno Guimaraes.

North London rivals Arsenal and Spurs have also been credited with interest this summer, and Lyon president this weekend told reporters: “There are proposals for him.

“There are certain players who can feel complete in the project, and others who don’t. Economically, we have the means to pursue our ideas and objectives.”

ICYMI – Chelsea make Cesar Azpilicueta transfer demands clear

Chelsea want £7million to sell Cesar Azpilicueta to Barcelona, writes Nizaar Kinsella.

The 32-year-old has already agreed personal terms on a two-year deal with the Spanish giants, which will see him pocket a substantial pay rise compared to his Blues contract.

Azpilicueta will earn £11million a season before tax and has held talks with Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel and new co-owner Todd Boehly about making the switch.

Chelsea want to recoup the £7m paid for Azpilicueta when he joined from Marseille a decade ago, but there is a belief that further negotiations will see the asking price lowered.


ICYMI – Sergej Milinkovic-Savic delivers Arsenal transfer blow

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has been linked with a move to Arsenal as attentions now turn to strengthening the midfield department at the Emirates Stadium following the signing of Gabriel Jesus.

At one point, the Serbian was one of the most-highly rated stars in Europe, although his stock has dropped somewhat in recent years.

That might not ever matter to Arsenal, however, as Calciomercato claim the Lazio star has little interest of a move to north London.


Raheem Sterling: A matter of moments before Chelsea move

Standard Sport have already brought you the news that Raheem Sterling has undergone his medical ahead of a move to Chelsea.

Now, The Sun have provided an update.

They claim the England star is merely now awaiting the results of said medical, waiting to join the club’s pre-season tour in America.
